$35 Tablet

We have seen a lot of swanky tablets around the market nowadays but nobody can beat this not so swanky looking tablet from India’s Ministry of Human Resource Development for a challenging price of Rs. 1,500 or $35 only. This one is way cheaper than the $75 OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) option.

This Rs.1,500 device has the form factor of a tablet and supposedly has a 7-inch touchscreen display. It is capable of browsing the web and comes with a keyboard as well. The device has got about 2GB of RAM, Wi-Fi connectivity and a USB port, which is pretty amazing at such a budget. The tablet has been developed by the government in collaboration with premier scientific institutes like the IITs & IISc.

The Ministry of Human Resource Development has plans to reduce the price of this device further down to just $10. If every thing goes according to plan we would be able to see many students sporting the revolutionary device.
